Episode #040 – How to start from nothing

As they say, it’s much easier to turn $100 into $1,000 than to turn $0 into $100. In fact, that couldn’t be more true because starting anything is super hard, never mind making money.

In this episode, I give you the blueprint to starting out on your own terms. This is the information I wish I had when I set out to build my own business.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • The two main business models to pursue (always know which business model you’re pursuing)
  • My own mistake (this year!) of not being consistent with one of my goals
  • The “get rich quick” and “build something lasting” approaches
  • The fastest way to make money tomorrow (or today)
  • Why you shouldn’t worry about monetization when thinking long term
  • Why everyone needs a brand regardless if they’re already making money
  • The one mistake my own sister is making (and how she could fix it)
  • And many more ideas, tips and tricks on starting from zero

Enjoy!

Episode #035 – Location & Hustle

I spent the first part of the year in New York City. When I was there, I didn’t go out. I didn’t drink. I didn’t see many friends. I didn’t party. I focused on only one thing: work. I was obsessed with work.

After 3-4 months of nothing but work, I made a ton of mistakes but also build a couple of businesses in a new field. It was easily one of the most productive times of my life.

Then, I returned back to Ukraine. Let’s just say, things aren’t as productive as they were in NYC.

In this podcast, I talk about my mindset, work ethic and the “make a ton of mistakes” mentality I have when it comes to quickly building different businesses.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Why I’m uber productive in New York City
  • My 3 on/1 off schedule for building a business quick
  • My “make a ton of mistakes” mentality when bootstrapping
  • The need to be obsessed when building a business
  • Great locations around the world to hustle and make big
  • Not so good locations for hustling and growing a biz
  • What to do when you’re starting from nothing
  • And tons of other actionable tips and advice for making it with nothing on your back

Enjoy!
